BREAKING: Al-Ahli reach agreement with Man City to sign Riyad Mahrez

BREAKING: Al-Ahli reach agreement with Man City to sign Riyad Mahrez

Mahrez has been rumoured with a move away from the Etihad.

Saudi Arabian side Al Ahli have agreed a deal to sign Riyad Mahrez from Manchester City, according to reports.

The deal is worth a reported €35million (£30.4m, $39.2m) plus €5m in add-ons, claims David Ornstein of The Athletic, with the 32-year-old expected to undergo a medical tomorrow.

It is thought he will put pen to paper on a three-year contract with a conditional fourth, calling time on a five-year stay at the Etihad.

Mahrez was left out of City’s 25-man squad for their pre-season trip to Japan, hinting that his future may have been up at the club.

And it now seems a decision has been made, with Mahrez set to to join the likes of N'Golo Kante, Ruben Neves, Roberto Firmino and Kalidou Koulibaly who have already the popular switch from England to the Saudi Pro League this summer.

The Algeria international will leave having scored 78 goals and provided 59 assists in 236 appearances for City.

But his exit could have major ramifications on Pep Guardiola's transfer plans. Earlier on Wednesday, reports suggested that Raphinha could move to City if Mahrez left for Saudi Arabia.

And with Mahrez's move now all but confirmed, City's efforts to sign Raphinha may step up a gear as they look to fill the void left behind by the former Leicester winger.

Bernardo Silva has also been rumoured with a move away this summer, with Paris Saint-Germain allegedly keen to sign the 28-year-old midfielder.

However, City are against a sale and will reportedly use Declan Rice's British-record £105 million to Arsenal as a financial benchmark.
